243 Crush 40

For a guy who sung in one of the crappiest Sonic games ever, you gotta admit I Am All of Me was good even though it was a bit too edgy. - MillieTrina_Prower

We can all agree that Crush 40 has produced THE all time greatest video game music.

Why is crush 40 at 911? it should be way higher

244 Crowded House

Neil Finn is one of the best songwriters of ALL TIME. Seriously, the man is a genius - listen to any of their albums for definitive proof. Pure gold people.

Can't say enough about how good the songs are - never seem to lose their magic.

Temple Of Low Men and Together Alone are back to front masterpieces. Timeless music on par with any of the greats - Finn is incredibly unhearlded and underrated. Sublime.

A pure pop band and very melodic but in no way a rock band - frankmartin

A crappy Glam Metal band that should be at the bottom.

247 The Pretenders

Chrissie Hynde is one of the all-time great rock stars, up there with Iggy Pop. Sublime voice singing killer songs - legend.

Her last two albums ( Stockholm and Alone ) have been fantastic. Pretenders are Chrissie and she is a goddess. Don't you forget it.

Again... This only shows that people are not informed at all! I not, I feel sorry for all of us!

Chrissie Hynde = Rock Queen.

256 The Cramps

Lux interior is an icon, and Poison Ivy is up there as one of the greatest guitarists of all time. Simply a legendary band.

257 Daughtry Daughtry Daughtry is an American rock band formed and fronted by namesake Chris Daughtry, who was a finalist on the fifth season of American Idol. Their self-titled debut album was released in November 2006.

Love songs like "There and Back Again" and "What I want". Chris Daughtry has an amazing voice and inspiring lyrics. Definitely an awesome band!

I love Daughtry! One of my favourite bands ever. I love most of their songs especially Open Your Eyes. They deserve to be higher than 184.

258 Al Bird Dirt
259 Steely Dan Steely Dan

One of the greatest bands in history. Donald Fagen is a genius.

Babies must be voting here otherwise this band, and many others from that era would be at the top!

Wow an under 40 list, apparently talent doesn't matter as long as you can bang your head on something

368? That's not even fair. They need to be top 20 AT LEAST.

Because they can make music nobody else can create. That's why I think they should be on top 5. Manowar is awesome! Manowar is one of the best rock bands in the world.
